Post by Janelled90 on Tue 01 Apr 2014, 03:55

Ok so i've managed to get my sims 3 to open but still having the problem with it crashing after i move them in to their house in the Dragon Valley world.Could it be because i upgraded to windows 8.1?

Hi there,

Windows 7 pc seems to have a higher success and stability rate in running The Sims 3, but The Sims 3 (to some extent) can also be run on Windows 8. However, that doesn't necessarily Windows 8 pcs cannot run The Sims 3. The Sims 3 can be caused by many other issues.

First, I would like to ask the game version of The Sims 3 base game. Is it the latest (1.67)? To check, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Open the file Gameversion.sgr with Notepad. The first line of the file shows the game version.

Do you also have any expansions installed? You need at least one expansion mentioned below to circumvent the problem:
Into the Future, Movie Stuff, Island Paradise, University Life, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations

However, if you can manage to run The Sims 3 with the latest fix, I reckon you may already have the expansions installed.

After doing so, download and install manual patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v167-fix-manual-patch (even if it is proven to be 1.67). After that, apply the Ultimate Fix you have downloaded. To do so, open the folder # Crack (Other files/folders are not required to fix your game except # Crack), drag and drop the content of the folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

If that doesn't work, may I ask where you have got Dragon Valley from? If it is not from www.games4theworlddownloads.org, please download from this website. Delete the content of the folder C:\Users\(your account username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\DCCache. and C:\Users\(your computer username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\InstalledWorlds. After that, delete the following and re-install Dragon Valley:


If that doesn't help, rename the folder C:\Users\(your account username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 to anything you like, and restart the game to see the difference.

Other than all these, I am clueless.

I looked inthe folder and this is what it says:GameVersion = 1.67.2.024017
Code:0.RL-2.0.209
Asset:1.Content.rl.41
Thumbnails:1.Thumbnail.dl.933
TCC:1.TCC.dl.1209

I managed to get the game to work last night i just made sure i saved before i did anything like moving sims in and it seems to have worked for now. I have Supernatural, Island Paradise, Into the future, Uni, Seasons, Master suite, pets, town life, late night, generations, ambitions and high end loft stuff. I got dragon valley off of thepiratebay.se (ANcient)

Hello,

I don't see any images in your post. Can you re-post the image?

You are strongly advised not to double-post. Please do edit your last post if you have any additional information and if no one replies after you.

OK, do you have any other issues, or can I close the topic ? Smile
